I first knew Jean when I was a candy striper at Annie Penn in the radiology department. I later went to school and began my career in Radiology at Annie Penn in 1981. I really enjoyed my years there and the leadership of Jean. All that worked with Jean will have many treasured memories to cherish. So sorry to hear that she passed, but I know that she is at rest now!

I am so sorry.   My family ( the late Harry Smith family) dearly loved she and her Mom "Miss Mary" I recently visited with Jean and borrowed a stone to prop flowers  at the cemetery near her house. I was so shocked to hear of her death.  We all loved her so much.  A very smart girl!!!!!
